For decades vacationers have made Negril Jamaica their favourite destination of travel.

Couples have come to enjoy the freedom it has to offer, while families have enjoyed its beauty and fun activities.

Negril is conveniently located about 2 hours (50 miles) from the Donald Sangster Airport in Montego Bay, the closest international airport to Negril.

The name "Negril" is a shortened version of "Negrillo" as it was originally named by the Spanish in 1494. [See History of Jamaica]

The western coastline contains the island's finest beaches, stretching for more than six kilometers along a sandbar at Negril. It is known as the "7-Mile Beach".

For years, Negril's 7 Mile Beach, has been rated as one of the top 10 beaches in the world by many travel magazines.

Rick's Cafe is a great place to watch the cliff jumpers or become a cliff jumper yourself. Rick's is considered one of the 1,000 places to go before you die!
